DEI Death Zone™

Why DEI is Really Failing

WHAT IS THE DEI DEATH ZONE™

Mt. Everest is the highest peak in the world where hundreds of people every year dream of ascending its summit. The most dangerous passage known as the ‘death zone’ designates an altitude and insufficient oxygen level so extreme that climbers have perished and their frozen remains lay unrecovered being walked by and over serving as a frightening realism the pursuit for glory is in tandem with jeopardizing their life.

The hazards, treacherous, and life-threatening conditions which climbers face on their expedition is equivalent to the journey required to achieve our ideal state of inclusion.

While Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first pioneers to reach Everest’s peak, our elusive DEI summit is still awaiting its first pioneers to ascend and shine light on its path.


View HBO’s “Glory or Death” documentary and as an exercise, draw the analogies that may be associated with DEI.

The roadmap is rigged. Repeating decades of failed progress is on the line if we continue following this same path with the same solutions, rewarding the wrong criteria.

DEI Death Zone™

The death zone does not mean efforts have stopped inside your organization. In fact, quite the opposite.

Visible activities in the name of DEI are concealing the oppressive decisions that prevent the required efforts for change through 5 newfound unconscious biases. This is why DEI initiatives are failing that disputes existing literature and current best practices.

DEI Summit Strategy™

Our solution is a cutting-edge framework that enables organizations to finally achieve the elusive, ideal state of inclusion. Our solutions are targeted to address and remove the roadblocks. The success of this climb and summit is reliant on all leadership.

“Everyone has biases.” We have grown very comfortable with this when there was a time it was met with resistance. It is time to evolve this to “Every leader has the capacity to be an advocate and an oppressor.” Specific to DEI and of people. Today, understandably this is difficult to hear and particularly by those who had to fight to get to where they are and those still fighting. This is the new work of bias for us all to help emerge DEI from its death zone status.” – Dr. Tiffany Brandreth

Pursuit for glory.

These epiphanies illuminate an exciting new endeavor for our industry. It will be a challenging quest but one worthy for the pursuit of glory to ascend upon the summit of true Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
